Angry Taxi Drivers Kidnap Man and Kill a Girl

Khayelitsha – A Delft man and woman were attacked and kidnapped during the weekend in Khayelitsha, Western Cape. The pair was walking from the shops when they were attacked by kidnappers.

The Delft man was dumped on a field while his friend was beaten up to death. The victims, Faizel Lakay (21) and Priscilla Sauls (29) were snatched on Sunday, allegedly by a group of angry taxi drivers.

The taxi drivers had mistaken the two for members of a prostitution syndicate, which had robbed a taxi driver earlier that morning. The victim’s father, Everton, confirmed on Tuesday that Pricilla’s body has been discovered at Tygerberg Mortuary after she had been beaten up to death and dumped at Kleinvlei. Faizel was also taken to hospital after he was dumped on a veldjie, beaten.

Everton also reported that Faizel and Priscilla had been walking with three friends and a woman named Pinky, when a taxi pulled in next to them and grabbed the two into the taxi.

“Three men were walking in front and they told us they saw a taxi pull up and Pinky ran away. Then the men in the taxi got out and beat Priscilla and Faizel and threw them in the van,” he said.

The victims were blindfolded during the whole incident and none of the kidnappers have been identified.
